The unofficial definitions of Unemployment and real people left uncounted

There is an official definition for unemployment that everyone can find at the Bureau of Labor Statics ( However, because unemployment, and employment calculations do not count all peoples, and have a limited view of the labor force for reporting numbers, they inadequately capture our potential problems.

We should consider the additional indicators when assessing our Labor Market problems, and the BLS does have some addition stats they consider, but the system as a whole… Continue

Current Economic Scenario - Effects on Recruiters & the US Economy

All the brouhaha over lay-offs and pink slips is finally coming to an end, whether temporarily or for next few years, only time will tell. I recently graduated with an MBA and the speculation whether the economy is picking up was driving me to an edge. The only solace was that there were more people like me around – people sitting at Starbucks with their laptops open and job alerts popping on their screen and speaking to headhunters for “relevant” opportunities.

However, what I… Continue

VIDEO RESUME – Works When?

I received few days back a candidate Video Resume who is interested for international opportunities and his skill sets was a perfect match for one of my requirements. His video resume gave me an additional bonus to make him stand out from other candidates.

The legal aspect always comes up immediately when it comes to Video Resume in North America. Employers cannot discriminate against an applicant on the basis of race, color, religion, sex,… Continue

What’s in a name?

Naming a career site is something everyone thinks they can do – but few do well. Sorry, folks, it’s true. A good name is hard to find (and a good URL is even harder).

Well, you may ask, why? Let me suggest that these names come in 3 basic flavors, each presenting its own particular set of benefits and problems.

Let's Be Direct About Direct Sourcing

Go Direct Over the last two days I connected with 6 long time friends and former colleagues in corporate recruiting. A few of them have been clients and a few others are professionals in the corporate recruiting space that I routinely chat with about various issues, challenges, strategies and tactics. Pretty much these are open discussion sessions where I learn a ton from each of them and…

Expand Your Talent Search to Find the Perfect Match

Employers need to ask themselves: "Are we missing out on some very talented, very experienced candidates in these other MBA populations?" The answer is yes. Over the past few years, the gap has closed between the full-time MBA student and these experienced part-time, evening, executive and alumni MBAs. Companies are sitting on an amazing pool of talent. And it's reachable though MultiPost job postings and in searchable online resume books powered by… Continue

So Which is Most Effective: Resumes or Job Postings?

If done correctly, resumes AND job posting are the most effective. While resumes allow you to get deeper and more hands-on in the recruiting process, MultiPost job postings can do that work for you. Searchable resume books will help you find the best candidates and the best matches "on paper." But job postings will bring you the candidates who are actually interested in your job opening. And even in this… Continue

What is your referral to hire ratio?

This is a very important question before any company hires a Recruiter. Some Recruiters are trapped in this question because they have trouble tracking numbers and activity? Objective of hiring a Recruiter is Target deliverables and by asking this question employer will know of what a Recruiter has done in the past and what he/she is going to do for their clients.

Help with Global Applicant Tracking Systems Stats

It has been a long time since I’ve had a new post. The truth is that I’ve been swamped. I’m experiencing a massive influx in ATS activities. One of the biggest questions I’ve been asked in the last few weeks revolves around the number of companies using applicant tracking systems. While I have a solid understanding about market segments in the US, I would like to gain further insight of applicant tracking systems used on a global scale. From this information, I would like to do some “fun stats”… Continue

The best interview tip I can give you is…botox?!?!

I must be losing my mind. I’ve recently read a comment by a job seeker who is considering botox injections in an attempt to gain a leg up during an interview. I think we can all agree that there are probably companies and work environments that still practice sexism, racism and age discrimination. If you are actively looking for a job, the question you need to ask yourself is, “Do I want to be a part of this type of environment?”

There is a growing market for personal branding and… Continue

Virtual Recruitment Pride March!

Lets have a parade.

I was reading a reply to a question I posed on the Australian Corporate Recruiters site (blatant plug)around why people do Recruitment. A response I received by David Talamelli got me thinking. He responded with "I am still amazed when I see people calling themselves Senior Recruiters with 3-4 yrs exp."

I believe this is due to the fact that people drop out of the… Continue
